Welcome to the homepage of the

Woodlands Art League

Art is not what you see, 

but what you make others see.

--Edgar Degas

January is named for the Roman god Janus.  I’m sure you’ve seen images of a classical figure with two faces, one looking into the past and one looking into the future.  Janus was also the god of doorways and gates, and thus, new beginnings.  It’s fitting that we still begin our calendar year as an opportunity to experience new things, start new projects, and look forward to new days that stretch out before us.

At the Woodlands Art League, we are also starting something new.  Our new studio/gallery will soon be up and running with classes and workshops beginning in January.  The gallery will host an exhibition starting in late January when we hope to have an artists’ reception, too.  We are looking to begin regular open studio sessions, “Paint-outs,” and groups to engage our members and to encourage others to join us.

We have plans to have special shows, judged shows, and other events to let the community around us see who and what we are, the premier group of artists working and creating in The Woodlands.  We want to move out and into the area with special exhibits in remote locations, stores, and offices.  It’s exciting to think of the opportunities ahead of us.

What do we need from you, the members.  First, we need your continued support.  There is no shaking the facts that it has been a challenging year.  By being part of WAL, you ensure we will be there into the future.  Renew your membership if you need to and invite your friends to join.  Begin to spread the word that the Woodlands Art League is going strong.

But what we also need is participation.  If you take part in some aspect of our programs you will help us keep moving.  Join a group, take a class, volunteer to work on a committee, or attend a show or exhibit.  There is a lot of things you can do and we need to know that you are willing to do them.  It’s the doing that keeps us strong.

Art Show Slide Show! 

Enjoy this quick souvenir of the show.

A very special Thanks! to Mr. Vic Cherubini of Epic Software Group for providing most

of the photos in the slide show and allowing us to use the wonderful venue!

How to get to the New WAL Facility at 701 Sawdust Rd! 

If you are looking at Hobby Lobby, look to the right to see a strip center across the way.  Look to the left of that and see a blue and silver building.  Then look further to the left and see a silver two-story building.  WAL is in that silver building, and our entrance is on the right side of the building.  We're still working on the opening and our hours, so stay tuned!

How to Help WAL With (Almost) No Effort

Did you know that many retailers offer programs that will donate portions of your purchase to non-profit organizations like WAL?  Amazon Smile, for example, is one such program.  If you're going to order something, please consider making the Woodlands Art League your charity of choice and share some joy this Holiday Season!


The chief enemy of creativity

is "good" sense.

South County Community Center

Art Show Ending

The display that we had at the South County Community Center on Lake Robbins will no longer be allowed per county official's request.  

Thanks to all who have participated in the past.  We will be looking for a new places to display our art.  So, if you know of somewhere, let us know!  

The Monday Morning Portrait Group

We've been advised that the Oklahoma Community Center will remain closed indefinitely.  So, the Monday Paintgroup is suspended until we can meet safely.    

We're trying some new things!

We've added a bit of flash to the homepage with a couple of images.  Keep and eye out here for information on how to be a "featured" artist with the banner on our homepage.  We're looking forward to seeing your work!

Woodlands Area Art Trading Cards Group

Create, Trade, and Collect!

We want to let you know that ATC has

gone postal!

Art Trading Cards are tiny gems - 2-1/2" X3-1/2" - that you make  and trade with others. Any medium can be used, paints, collage, fabrics and more as long as they can fit into a standard trading card pocket. Create some to trade on the spot, or bring some with you in any state of completion. 

As we are a small group, each person creates 2 cards for each member per month.  We mail them out to each other at the beginning of the month.  Everyone has the option of doing what they want, but we often agree on a topic for at least one of the cards.

What you do is up to you!  Creativity is worth sharing and this is a perfect way to not only share your art, but get others' art in return.  What a fun way to introduce yourself to new artist-friends!

This group is sponsored for the community by the  Woodlands Art League. There is no charge and membership is not required. Adults and older teens with parent are welcome. Bring a friend or two!

For more info contact group leader,

Teri Valentine, at terilynn248@aol.com
